You have every right to complain. You didn't put these people into power because you didn't vote--the mindless masses who keep falling in love with
the "new" faces of corporate puppetry did. The same people who like to say that if you don't vote, you're allowing the majority to elect these
corrupt bastards. All we have to choose from is corrupt bastards. The media and special interests decide which candidates are propped up for you to
see and which aren't... and they're all corrupt bastards. And the vast majority of the electorate is so dumbed down that they can't see through
Here's a thread that at least might give you a little laugh about the whole thing:
If You DID Vote, You Can't Complain
You're absolutely right in that an evolutionary leap is needed to transcend the current social paradigm, and that parents are largely responsible for
cultivating such a leap. For parents to be truly effective in this, they must A) first, wake up; B) be involved in their childrens' lives; C) get
them OUT of government schools (I don't use the phrase "public school"--any time you hear the word "public" in the realm of political discourse,
it is intentional rhetoric to disguise the fact that the government is exercising control over your life); and D) turn off the television.
We must reverse our current course, and get away from politics, consumerism, vicarism, materialism, and the like. The only way to do that, as a
civilization, is to instill REAL values and ideals in upcoming generations, and NOT the false paradigm we are bombarded with all day every day.
